Regency, Interrupted

You know when you know how something is going to turn out, and so you go ahead and eat a candy bar, even thought you've been cutting out sugar for a few weeks, but it's rainy and cold and you didn't final in the Golden Heart--- so you go ahead and eat that chocolate?

And then they call you and tell you that you've finaled?

And you say, "But I already ate my 'I didn't final' candy bar!"

Yes. That's the kind of calm, collected, sophisticate that I am.

Now I have to go calm down so I can drive to school and pick up my kids. I'm pretty certain the police won't be impressed by a GH final.

Huge congratulations to the other GH and Rita finalists! :)

Congrats, Gillian! I was wondering why your name seemed so familiar and that it hit me . . . Avon Fanlit! Woohoo!

Elyssa, I think we'll all be remembering Fanlit friends 20 years from now. Does Avon even know how powerful it was? I hope so.:)
